Have any of you guys dealt with a oil leak on the passenger side seems to be getting all over my alternator

Check your valve cover and other seals right above it. With that much fluid it shouldn't be hard to miss.

Looks like PS pump leak to me.

Check for a drip coming from behind crank pulley. Oil leaking from the front main seal can be flung up by the pulley. The oil on the alternator looks too dark to be power steering fluid.

Wow, when is the last time you opened your hood! 2 years ago??

Going by that picture, that is a ton of oil that has seeped into your alternator.
Your serpentine belt is likely oil saturated and toast. All the pulleys have oil on them and the belt is likely slipping.

When is the last time you checked the engine oil level? That oil leak is causing your engine oil level to go down.

Wipe it all down and take your car to a mechanic.

Every time you get fuel, open up your hood, check all your fluid levels and check everything out.
